“Dossier” Exposes Brooksville Mayor’s Past Check Fraud Arrests – UPDATE

UPDATE: 2/14/2018, 6:48 P.M. – Due to several requests to provide documentation into the Mayor’s prior arrests. I have attached images of the 2007 arrest where Mayor Erhard is charged with 54-counts of check fraud.

BROOKSVILLE – We’re still several months away from the 2018 mid-term elections, but the political divides are already well-defined, and the mud buckets are filled to the rim.

From the party flip-flopping school board candidate to the 3:2 unambiguous disunion of the County Commission, there will be no shortage of fireworks in the months to come.

Brooksville City Council has been at the forefront of controversy in recent months, due to talks of a possibly dissolving the City’s Police Department. But it’s the unexpected release of Brooksville Mayor Betty Erhard’s prior arrests that is taking center stage.

Yesterday, RNRF received a list of “dirty laundry” from an anonymous source, outlining several shocking issues from Erhard’s past. Apart from her prior arrest reports, the “dossier” reads more like a disgruntled ex-husband venting over a contentious divorce.

Earlier today, I posted this question to RNRF viewers on our Community Facebook Page: “If you discovered that an elected official you voted for was arrested several times for felony fraud and did not disclose it prior to being elected, what do you think should happen to that elected official? Would you ask that they resign?” That’s exactly what Erhard is accused of, on more than one occasion, and it was not publically disclosed until today.

According to a Pasco County Court document, Erhard was arrested in 1991 for issuing worthless checks. She later accepted an offer of Pre-Trial Intervention to prevent having a felony conviction.

In 2007, Erhard was arrested in Hernando County after she allegedly forged at least 27 checks. The outcome of that case is unknown at this time, and Erhard did not provide an explanation in her email reply to our inquiry. Erhard says, “This is same character assassination I endured during the divorce.”

We asked Erhard if she would be willing to step down if her constituents or fellow Council members were to make that request. Erhard replied, “Why would I step down for allegations by an ex-husband? I will not step down based on accusations by an ex-husband.”

City Councilman Joe Bernardini defended Erhard, stating “This has all the markings of a smear campaign. I wonder who’s behind it?” But Councilwoman Natalie Kahler was shocked at the news, and when asked if Erhard should be removed for not being forthcoming during her campaign, she said, “It would be up to the people if that is an issue they are concerned with.”

We tried to reach Erhard’s ex-husband, John Erhard for comment but he has yet to respond.

Despite the fact that Erhard’s arrests date back over a decade, most people surveyed still questioned whether she can be trusted to manage the City’s Budget. However, several commenters defended Erhard because she was not “Convicted” of a felony.

  • And yes winter kid very well said

  • To the truth be told I have no idea what the sexual predators are talkin about could you please enlighten us and let us know who this is would love to know thanks

    Saturday, 17 February 2018, 10:25 am
  • How can you judge this woman from mistakes she made over 10 years ago ? How did this “exsponged” information get out to the public? How about looking into every COB employee/staff back ground and pull up all the other employees, whom have exsponged cases?

    Friday, 16 February 2018, 9:34 am
    • There should be no such thing as ‘exsponged'(lol)….. ‘EXPUNGED’ information when running for public office. We the people should be well informed of ALL these CRIMINALS past history no matter how long ago or (in my opinion, how sexy this hottie is). Being that you brought it up- I say they should(progressing forward)/should have looked deep into her past and unearth ALL of her/their past, especially when crimes have been committed!
      Betty Erhard should be relieved of her present duty as well as being ineligible from all future public office jobs simply because she is not of good character………. besides being a thief-

      Friday, 16 February 2018, 11:23 am
      • Well said, WinterKid

        Friday, 16 February 2018, 1:03 pm
      • Thanks for the spelling correction. Obviously, I’ve never had my criminal record “expunged”. I’m to proud to expunge any of my past mistakes, they’ve made me a better person.

        Friday, 16 February 2018, 1:17 pm
        • Ohhh BS “they’ve made me a better person” and “I’m to proud” bitch ppl with money (white ppl) do NOT go to jail and all charges are dropped within minutes of a fuk-up so STFU you know NOTHING about the penal system.

          Saturday, 17 February 2018, 6:40 am

  • You all bash a women for checks but a sex predator of women is ok with all of you . And you all know who I’m talking about.

    Thursday, 15 February 2018, 2:27 pm
  • She actually lives down the street from us and she is always pouring catfood in our neighbors yards. So you can add litterbug to the list.

    Thursday, 15 February 2018, 12:25 pm
    • That’s wonderful she’s feeding the hungry, stray cats.

      Friday, 16 February 2018, 9:04 am
    • Huh, thought I was the only one that watches her doing this. Poor white trash doing civil service, who’d a thunk it.

      Saturday, 17 February 2018, 9:35 am
  • Check Fraud and you run for office??? What was this woman thinking!

    Thursday, 15 February 2018, 8:13 am
  • Whoa black Betty,bam ba dam,black Betty is scam!

    Thursday, 15 February 2018, 7:15 am
  • its amazing i kept my eyes open long enuf to read all the comments about this woman.blah blah blah..do any of you ever watch or read any news but this local outlet? everyone seems dumbfounded by the alleged corruption swimming amongst our beautiful county.really?? its a delicate balance of of good and bad that keeps this place economically sound.without those who might bend a few rules and those who stand fast against such afronts to societys perceived vision of its black and white moral compass , this whole thing would be scary to live in..picture other far off lands where you either follow the leader or you dont.that kind of thinking usually ends up bad for either side and thats all folks…too many examples from the begining until now..anyhoo ..get over it..it wont stop now or ever.no reason to get all bent over it.unless you plan on taking on the system and risk getting chopped..sit back and enjoy the ride …or dont…she is kinda hot sorta..the title mayor doesnt hurt either..

    Thursday, 15 February 2018, 3:43 am
  • This is ridiculous. Give her a pass. I definitely am. This is irrelevant and old. She’s a beautiful woman. Leave her alone.

    Wednesday, 14 February 2018, 8:52 pm
    • No way! Hold her accountable. That many times and she’s not a crook?

      Wednesday, 14 February 2018, 9:50 pm
  • still hot!

    Wednesday, 14 February 2018, 7:57 pm
  • Where are the facts and how did the author get the expunged materials? What about due process? Do we now call people names and justify doing so on the one article? Where are her rebuttals or aren’t they allowed? Who is the author supporting? Questions that should be answered, that is if the paper is not rooting for the opponent.

    Tuesday, 13 February 2018, 9:32 pm
    • Tom isn’t known for his bravery. He most likely blocked her.

      Wednesday, 14 February 2018, 8:24 pm
    • Abigail. I’m wondering the same, how did he get the expunged materials ?

      Wednesday, 14 February 2018, 11:04 pm
  • So, why did this information not come up before her election ? Because it didn’t matter back then, now it matters because she’s pissing off several staff members who’s jobs are on the line. Brooksville style, low-life politics! If they can take Betty out first, they get to keep their jobs longer. Recognize someone that’s on the side of the people and is willing to fight for what is right. They don’t come around often.

    Tuesday, 13 February 2018, 9:25 pm
  • Well.when the question was asked I stated more info needed. With the info we now have. Her record would not allow her to work in a fast food restaurant.let alone be mayor of a city shouldn’t be long before she resigns or is asked to step aside.with I’m sure a nice little retirement package and as always. We the taxpayers will pay.

    Tuesday, 13 February 2018, 6:41 pm
    • lol she would actually be hired in two seconds at a fast food restaurant come get educated please.

      Wednesday, 14 February 2018, 8:03 pm
  • Commonly called “Small Town Politics.” Happens everywhere, just more obvious in the smaller towns and cities.

    Tuesday, 13 February 2018, 3:19 pm
  • IF YOU TAKE A LOOK AT THE REALLY LONG RECORD I POSTED FOR BETTY, YOU WILL SEE WHERE THERE WAS A FORECLOSURE AND A COUPLE LAWSUITS. ONE LAWSUIT WAS WHERE SHE DIDN’T PAY HER POOL SERVICE GUY, AND EVEN WHEN SHE LOST THE CASE, SHE STILL REFUSED TO PAY THE PLAINTIFF. HE HAD TO GO TO HER HOUSE AND DO A REPO. AND THERE IS ALSO A LAWSUIT WHERE IT LOOKS LIKE SHE DEFAULTED ON A LOAN, OR MAYBE A CREDIT CARD. CANT BE SURE, BUT THE PLAINTIFFS WERE NORTH STAR CAPITAL ACQUISITION AND
    WELLS FARGO FINANCIAL. ALSO, THERE IS A CASE IN THERE WHERE IT LOOKS LIKE SOMEONE GOT AN INJUNCTION AGAINST HER.

    SO WHEN YOU PUT THIS ALL TOGETHER, YOU HAVE A WOMAN THAT HAS FOUR SEPARATE ARRESTS (TWO MISDEMEANORS AND TWO FELONIES, ALL ON SEPARATE DATES). SHE HAS A HORRIBLE DRIVING RECORD, SHE HAS A HISTORY OF NOT PAYING SERVICE PEOPLE AND BANKS (WELLS FARGO), SHE HAS A HISTORY OF FORECLOSURE, AND IT LOOKS LIKE SHE HAS AN INJUNCTION AGAINST HER.

    IS THAT REALLY SOMEONE YOU WANT HANDLING YOUR TAX DOLLARS AND REPRESENTING THE CITY OF BROOKSVILLE??? NEED MORE CONVINCING? JUST LOOK AT SOME OLD VIDEOS OF HER BEHAVIOR AT CITY COUNCIL MEETINGS. SHE HAS A NASTY HABIT OF LETTING HER EMOTIONS GET THE BEST OF HER.

    Tuesday, 13 February 2018, 2:55 pm
    • Thanks. Quite the list.

      Wednesday, 14 February 2018, 10:08 am
      • I’M SORRY I CAN’T HELP IT. I DO THESE SORT OF THINGS BECAUSE I’M A WEAK AND INSECURE PERSON. IT MAKES ME FEEL HAPPY. IT’S PROBABLY MY MEDICATION. THE NEIGHBORS ARE ALWAYS CALLING THE COPS ON ME FOR WALKING AROUND THE YARD NAKED WEARING NOTHING BUT AN ALUMINUM FOIL HAT AND AND PAINT CANS ON MY FEET WHILE I CLUCK LIKE A CHICKEN. BOKK BGOK BAGOK!! .

  • CORRECTION… THE 2007 FORGERY ARREST WAS EXPUNGED, NOT DISMISSED. SHE BOUGHT AND PAID FOR THAT EXPUNGEMENT.

    Tuesday, 13 February 2018, 2:36 pm
  • EDUCATE YOURSELVES. HERE IS HER RECORD FROM THE HERNANDO COUNTY CLERK’S OFFICE. IT INCLUDES EVERYTHING BUT THE 2007 FORGERY ARREST THAT SHE HAD DISMISSED. SHE ALSO HAD TWO MINOR MISDEMEANORS IN HER YOUTH. ADDITIONALLY, IT INCLUDES HER HORRIBLE DRIVING RECORD. NOT THAT YOU NEED A GOOD DRIVING RECORD TO BE MAYOR, BUT PERHAPS GETTING TICKETS OVER AND OVER SHOWS THAT SHE HAS A HARD TIME FOLLOWING RULES.

    CITY RESIDENTS, REMEMBER THAT SHE IS MAKING FINANCIAL DECISIONS YOUR THE BUDGET. A BUDGET THAT IS FUNDED WITH YOUR TAX DOLLARS. DO THE MATH.

    PERHAPS YOU SHOULD REQUEST THAT SHE STEP DOWN FROM THE COUNCIL.

    • Discounting all the offenses, what is with all the aliases? How can anyone be in public office using multiple fake names? She has no reason to manage public funds. She can’t even manage her own name!

      Wednesday, 14 February 2018, 7:24 pm
      • ARE YOU MARRIED 1HOTGRANDMA? HOW HOT ARE YOU? HOW MUCH DO YOU WEIGH? I’M NOT INTO BIG FAT GRANNIES BUT A BEEFY BACKSIDE IS OKAY BY ME. ARE YOU A BBW? NO ARM FLAB THOUGH. THAT’S A DEAL BREAKER. I CAN’T HANDLE THOSE FLOPPY FLAPPY SLAPPY BAT WING ARM FLINGING AROUND LIKE A LOAD OF WET CYPRESS MULCH. IF I LIKE HOW YOU LOOK, MAYBE YOU CAN BUY ME LUNCH SOMETIME.

        Thursday, 15 February 2018, 2:57 am
  • I don’t know her and until now never heard of her. The 1991 non violent no conviction for a check is nothing and was 27 years ago. The 2007 needs to be looked into but the source is anonymous and the Mayor claims it had something to do with a divorce and couples can get very mean. If she was convicted, it should be easy to figure out. It’s odd this didn’t come out in the election.

    Tuesday, 13 February 2018, 2:20 pm
  • SMH! I smell sexism! Who knows for what reason she may have bounced a check?, Food, Electric Bill, Clothing, Gas. ETC
    Instead of being booty hurt over a County elected official that wrote a bad check. Worry about the Commander In Chief of the United States of America and wherever else his brain thinks. Complain about him thinking it’s ok to Sexually batter women or down grade them. Thank you

    Tuesday, 13 February 2018, 1:43 pm
    • You’re a special kind of idiot aren’t you!

      Wednesday, 14 February 2018, 6:36 am
      • Totally agree, Hardcoregalore!

        Wednesday, 14 February 2018, 7:26 pm
        • Shut up granny, I don’t need your help.

          Wednesday, 14 February 2018, 8:56 pm
          • Up yours!

            Wednesday, 14 February 2018, 8:57 pm
            • Jeez you people are MEAN!

              Wednesday, 14 February 2018, 10:00 pm
  • Lol do you guys realize the mayor only gets paid $7200 a year. It’s practically a symbolic position..basically just a city council seat.

    Tuesday, 13 February 2018, 12:10 pm
    • It’s the power that the seat holds. If the mayor is corrupt then the corruption flows down hill. Didn’t you watch The Dukes of Hazzard? Lol

      http://www.nlc.org/mayoral-powers

      Tuesday, 13 February 2018, 12:57 pm
    • Mayors usually have another job unless they are dirty and get paid under the table and accept bribes then the $7200 is just change in their wallets so your claim just proves that she needs more money.

      Wednesday, 14 February 2018, 6:48 am
  • She looks like she just ate a SH** samwhich!

    Tuesday, 13 February 2018, 10:26 am
  • First off it is arrest and court records. not someones accusations. Avg people have life destroyed over a bounced check..let alone forgery ..she becomes mayor..

    Tuesday, 13 February 2018, 8:52 am
  • Why wasn’t this brought out during her initial election? Anyone who watches the meetings know there is bad blood between her and Natalie. This is clearly either an ex-husband scorned or someone in Natalie’s camp. Betty has been accused of wanting to shutdown the Brooksville police dept although she says that’s not her intention. Connect the dots… Rick Hankins (Bville police capt) just donated $700 to Natalie’s county commission campaign. Why does he care about Natalie’s campaign? If she wins, she won’t even be living in the city limits anymore. Betty might be rough around the edges, but she fights for the people and stands her ground. She doesn’t play games like some others and definitely cannot be bought.

    Tuesday, 13 February 2018, 8:00 am
  • She needs to be removed. People may bounce checks by mistake. But they pay it back with the NSF charge on top. For there to be a felony charged against you, that would mean, you knew you didn’t have the money and you didn’t want to pay the bank back. So that makes you a thief. She may have a pretty face but she is still a thief.

    Tuesday, 13 February 2018, 7:54 am
  • Yes, arrest records can be revealing, can they not?

    Tuesday, 13 February 2018, 7:42 am
  • Of course one of Hernando County’s “professional politicians” with a very long history in public office (also was Mayor in the past) stepped up to defend her. Hey Joe, how ya doin?

    Tuesday, 13 February 2018, 7:39 am
    • Hey 38special, just smd in all the Hernando county corruption. I think I miss Nugent. I don’t know but things really started to go down hill since he left. Maybe I’m wrong but that’s the way it seems to me.

      Tuesday, 13 February 2018, 12:42 pm
  • She needs to go, what’s goes for us should go for her!!!!! Lies and secrets, not acceptable!

    Tuesday, 13 February 2018, 7:38 am
  • Smear campaign or not, if it’s the truth, she needs to KEEP her big girl panties on while her double standard a$$ gets FIRED. Just sayin…

    Tuesday, 13 February 2018, 7:24 am
  • This is the tip of a large ice berg and whats wrong with our community, until the citizens finally take back our local government, we will be led by people such as this and our other county worthless officials including our sheriffs office.

    Tuesday, 13 February 2018, 4:52 am
  • who cares , She’s Hot!!!!

    Monday, 12 February 2018, 11:49 pm
    • #teambetty She’s got my support. I don’t even care what she did. =D

      Tuesday, 13 February 2018, 12:46 am
    • Why does politics attract so many scummy people like this broad?

      Tuesday, 13 February 2018, 4:02 am
    • The root of this countrys trouble begins with morons just like you. Try thinking with the head on your shoulders and not the one in your pants 😡

      Tuesday, 13 February 2018, 7:28 am
    • Real hot

      Tuesday, 13 February 2018, 10:16 am
    • Yep, Hot babe! She may not be able to manage city hall effectively anymore but she can “manage me any time she likes. For those with the typical comment about thinking with the wrong head …………lighten up that’s how you got here in the first place. For those that are looking for leaders with no skeletons in their closets, good luck! You will find it a short list of peeps. And no I am not supporting her past actions, nor am I condemning her. I wasn’t there so I don’t know the circumstances. Do any of you? If so please feel free to share those facts, I’m pretty certain Tom and the rest of us would be interested in knowing what you have. Now flame away…………… 🙂

      Tuesday, 13 February 2018, 2:54 pm
      • Unforgiven…you should leave your real name and number. I’m sure she would take you up on an offer. I hear she loves spreading herself all over town.

        Tuesday, 13 February 2018, 6:56 pm
        • Ouch…………..looks like Wille got turned down, sorry about your luck! Nice smear though.

          Wednesday, 14 February 2018, 4:03 am
    • That’s what I’m thinking ….

      Wednesday, 14 February 2018, 9:21 am
      • Was referring to “some can overcome the past” comment

        Wednesday, 14 February 2018, 9:24 am
  • Wow just wow

    Monday, 12 February 2018, 10:35 pm
    • Did you noticed not “convicted” So when I go and fill out a application say at a bank and they need a background check (oops sorry) and it says that I was arrested for writing bad checks BUT I wasn’t “convicted” they would run my ass out of there and NEVER even a thought that I was in the running with 100 other ppl that have applied for the job no how no way, I like Tom he has a set BUT there is so much corruption going on there that when you go to the courthouse or anywhere these slobs go that it smells like sewage.

      Tuesday, 13 February 2018, 9:40 am
  • Please give out an address to mail contributions I don’t want to do online

    Monday, 12 February 2018, 10:30 pm
  • She is no different than any other politician screw working for the city she would be perfect for the sheriff of Hernando County a liar and a crook perfect cop material

    Monday, 12 February 2018, 10:00 pm
  • I doubt it was from her ex husband. If it was, it would have probably mentioned something about all of her sleeping around and many of the other dirty secrets she hides. Could be an ex boyfriend, but good luck figuring out which one.

    Monday, 12 February 2018, 9:42 pm
    • She supports the false & ILLEGAL arrests from Brookville finest, tell her to get her POS ass out of Hernando and I would bet she has MANY MANY skeletons in her closet that are only going to show she has a crooked spine or if one at all.

      Tuesday, 13 February 2018, 7:03 am
    • I bet you look like a old potato. Oval, wrinkled and dimpled.

      Tuesday, 13 February 2018, 8:06 am
      • You must be an adolescent or really stupid,WTF does looks have to do with any of this? And besides,she average looking at best,and she’s obese!

        Tuesday, 13 February 2018, 11:49 am
        • Lol Hardcoregalore!!! This dimwit doesn’t know if I am a male/female 😬

          Tuesday, 13 February 2018, 3:22 pm
          • Then you must be a Tranny right?

            Tuesday, 13 February 2018, 4:59 pm
            • Yes your right I am a tranny and btw last night was great and don’t sweat it Joe it happens to all guys at least once,

              Tuesday, 13 February 2018, 11:40 pm
              • I beg to differ. I only love women only as intended.

                Wednesday, 14 February 2018, 9:50 pm
      • I’m sorry. I didn’t mean that. I ate paint chips as child.

        Wednesday, 14 February 2018, 8:46 pm
  • Wow.She is still seen as guilty if she had taken PTI and failed.So taking PTI and completing it makes her guilty but left off the records but that is just my opinion.My belief though is if you are a police officer or above who in forces laws you should have to go by them even more so then the next person.By in forcing the laws they are not only looked up to but are a public figure of the law who should lead by example but again that’s my personal opinions.

    Monday, 12 February 2018, 9:41 pm
  • Hmmm,
    “Forging” Checks and Bouncing Checks are VERY different things.

    Monday, 12 February 2018, 9:38 pm
    • Either way, an upstanding citizen would not do it.

      Monday, 12 February 2018, 9:44 pm
      • Any other person that would of committed these FELONIES would be in PRISON!!!! Let Hernando county keep her she is perfect for them another DIRTY POS, yes they knew about her it was a perfect fit.

        Tuesday, 13 February 2018, 7:20 am
  • But isnt it city policy if you have been arrested you cant work for them?

    Monday, 12 February 2018, 9:28 pm
    • That only applies to you and I

      Tuesday, 13 February 2018, 8:57 am
  • … and now we know…

    Monday, 12 February 2018, 9:15 pm
  • What’s the big deal leave her alone it’s cops doing dirty stuff and the don’t get asked to step down the whole system is corrupt

    Monday, 12 February 2018, 9:04 pm
    • Leave her alone? ” Just cops doing dirty stuff ” ugh have you actually had a child in the public school system in this county? With what happened to my son in pre-k and kindergarten would make your stomach turn. And who do you think is behind the public school system?? The school board..and the corrupt school superintendent Lori Romano , this whole county officials is cesspool of sludge.. Now, Tom, can you please ask for dirty laundry on the school board..and Lori Romano?? One person at a time right?

      Monday, 12 February 2018, 9:42 pm
    • Hernando County Sheriff’s Office has their own rules. Why did they allow a deputy to resign and not be fired for his actions. He pointed a gun at his own family and then fires it. With a 11 hour standoff. Why are we not asking the Sheriff about that? Why did the Sheriff not show up that night but goes to others? That was one of his own…. He should have been fired a long time ago for domestic and drinking issues. They continue to cover up for their own. Now he will receive benefits, etc. No other county would allow this to happen. They have the good o boys attitude. Clean house starting from the top.

      Monday, 12 February 2018, 10:08 pm
      • And the cop who held his family hostage should also have child abuse charges can you imagine those kid had to go through. Sheriff Numbnuts would of throw the book at any other man and barely blink at this creep and all other POS that work for him and his possie of clowns. HORRIBLE

        Tuesday, 13 February 2018, 7:44 am
    • You must be her office bitch…

      Monday, 12 February 2018, 10:52 pm
    • So we csn break laws because otherd do…give her a break because others are corrupt … Can we rob your house because others rob houses..scary people like you vote

      Tuesday, 13 February 2018, 8:56 am
  • Black and White issue
